Think Pink: Wölffer Estate 2007 Rosé

All this week, we'll be reviewing rosés in honor of Valentine's Day. I consider rosé a misunderstood wine that can be excellent. Sadly, too many rosés are still sugary sweet. Rosé is more than white zinfandel or cheap blush, but a full-fledged wine style in itself. This week, we'll explore dry rosé, one of my favorite types of wine.

I'm kicking off this week's series with the 2007 Wölffer Estate Rosé, from Sagaponack, New York. Unfortunately, you can't find this wine in Cincinnati (that I'm aware of), but you can find it elsewhere. This particular bottle was part of a bourbon – wine trade between myself and Long Island wine blogger Lenn Thompson. I've also picked it up at a wine shop in Tampa, Florida.

This particular bottle is a little bit of everything, with a blend of 35% merlot, 40% chardonnay, 17% cabernet sauvignon, and 8% cabernet franc. The color is a nice coral shade of pink, with more oranges and tans than candy apple. On the nose, there is the unmistakeable scent of strawberries, along with citrus and apricot. It's an acidic wine, and it paired nicely with the Chinese food I was eating. It tastes fruity, but not sweet. It has apples, oranges, and limes, but there is also a nice quality of slate in there to balance it all out.

This fun wine was a great way to kick off the series. This wine is light rosé, and it would be a great wine to kick back on the deck and relax with on a hot summer evening. I prefer a little more heft to my rosés, but it was tasty nonetheless.
